Gilbert changing his number!!!

As some of you already know that Gilbert Arenas has submitted papers to change his number from #0 to #6. Some of you might think that Gilbert is follow Lebron's foot step but there is more true to the change of his number. Some say that the reason he picked #6 is because of his birthday on Jan 6th and also that was the date his indefinite suspension without pay came down. Whatever the reason is, we shall find out soon!!!

Arenas also had an interview with Esquire Magazine that will soon be hitting the newsstand about the gun incident. In the interview, Gilbert admitted to his wrong and quote " I deserve to be punished." Gil explained that he was not using "longevity thinking" when he play that prank on teammate Javaris Crittenton. Gilbert was also very disappointing because he personally felt that he messed up the legacy of team's owner Abe Pollin who passed away in November of last year.

Well, at least now we know that some things are cleared in the air. Gilbert will continue to play for Washington Wizards as long as he is allow. Gilbert will have a new number when next season rolls around, and at last, his sentencing next week on his faith with Probation or Jail time.

Save for Gilbert!!!!

All I have to say is WOW, what happened to the dismantle of the Wizard's core players? Jamison and Bulter are now gone as well as Stevenson and Haywood. It might be true that the team grew apart through out the time when Gilbert was injured and this past couple of months with Gilbert's legal trouble.

Wizards GM Grunfeld had explained that as long as Gilbert wants to play basketball and he is under contract, Washington will be the place for him to play. We can all take a deep breath now since we know at least Gilbert will still have a home as long as he is up for it.

Let's hope that he will be back in time for training camp and the start of the season without having to serve time in jail.

Arenas spoke out

Today Gilbert Arenas said in a story that he wrote to The Washington Post that he will try to rebuild his relationship and trust with youth around the D.C. area.

Arenas admitted that he understands the importance of promoting non-violence to children around the world. Gilbert also said that guns are no joking matter and it is a serious problem.

Now Gilbert had spoke out, I am sure that everyone knows how bad he feels about this whole ordeal. Now the world knows that Gilbert really regret on what had happen and he is going to accept full responsibilities.

Gilbert also had donated money in the past for every point he scored to different school in the D.C. area. Remember the shoes "Score for Schools". They are pictured here on the right.

Arenas done for the season

Gilbert Arenas and teammate Javaris Crittenton is suspended for the rest of the season by NBA commissioner David Stern.

According to Chris Sheridan from ESPN, if Gilbert received extensive jail time from the guilty plead a few weeks ago, the Wizards will have grounds to void the remaining of his contract. Sheridan also said that if Gilbert receives lighter sentence, the Wizards can try to void his contract or to trade him but it would be difficult since Gilbert has 4 years plus the tremendous amount that ties with it.

If Gilbert is traded, what team do you think he might land? Could there be a swap between Golden State and Washington? Monta Ellis for Gilbert Arenas? Maybe throw in Brendon Wright or Anthony Randolph? I hope he comes back to the Bay Area.

Fisher Talks Arenas/Crittenton Situation

According to the Washington Post, Derek Fisher, Player's Union President says that the union had been keeping a close eye on the situation with Gilbert and Javaris. Fisher explains that the union is concern about the "indefinite suspension" that David Stern had imposed a few weeks ago. Fisher also stated that the union is "taking the wait and see approach" with Arenas.

If you ask me, I think is crazy that Crittenton only received a year of unsupervised probation and Gilbert is facing a larger punishment. Maybe one loaded gun is not as big as having 4 unloaded guns in the locker room? Maybe Gilbert's guns were a little bigger than Javaris's?

Fisher finally said that there is nothing the player's union can do at this time until the sentencing or the NBA make a formal statement.

I guess we will have to wait to see what will happen to Gilbert's suspension and sentencing. Let's pray that he will not have to do any jail time.

Let's take a minute and remember

I just want to take a minute and go back a couple years back to look at a collection of shoes that Gilbert had with Adidas. In this Adidas TS Lightswitch collection, there were a total of 20 shoes with different color combination and theme. Here is the collection, what is your favorite pair?

Arenas will soon learn his fate

According to NBC Sports, Gilbert will learn from NBA commissioner David Stern how long his "indefinite" suspension will be by the end of the week. It is unknown at this point if the Wizards are still looking to void Gilbert's contract. And in regards to the other player that was involved, Javaris Crittenton, he will also have closure next week.

The D.A. have indicated that they will not seek more than six months in jail but the judge can order the star player anywhere between probation to the maximum term of five years in jail.

At least Gilbert can relax after next week when he finds out what his punishment is from the God of Basketball. After that, Gilbert will have time to prepare mentally for his return and also prepare himself for the worst case scenario when March 26th rolls around.

Until then, let's go back to Gilbert's earlier years when he was with Golden State.
